Grain Free Pumpkin Muffins

paleopumpkinmuffins7

Baking this morning with my very own “admiral underpants”. There’s really nothing like an underoo-clad 4 year old to make your baking experience a delight. With slow-but-steady little four-year-old-sized fingers, he carefully pulled apart each little mini-muffin liner and placed them into the muffin pan. My mommy-hands hovered above, pressing the scooper lever to fill each of his liners. Soon, we were ready to bake, and a short time later, we shared some pretty big smiles as we devoured 3 muffins each. Memories officially made.

PALEO / GRAIN-FREE PUMPKIN MUFFINS

First, we preheated our oven to 325 degrees f.

Ingredients:

1 cup organic peanut butter
3 eggs, pastured-raised
1/2 cup organic pumpkin puree
4 tablespoons coconut oil, liquified
1/4 cup +1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
1 tablespoon organic cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons organic lemon juice

In a mixing bowl, we lovingly combined these grain-less ingredients, spooned them into our lined mini muffin cups, and placed in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.

This week, I ran accross some deliciously plump organic plums at our local grocer (H.E.B.). They were glistening at me this afternoon from the fridge and I decided they needed to adorn an afternoon parfait.

I pulled out 2 cans of this week’s yogurt choice (So Delicious brand coconut yogurt) and some other add-ins: Frozen Organic Blueberries Fresh Organic Blackberries Dried Unsweetened Coconut Shreds 1 Banana

2 Juicy, Ripe Organic Plums (star of the show)

I layered everything beautifully in some stemless martini glasses just to enjoy the art of it all. Sweet treat that everyone was happy with!
